president obama wins his battle and brings in new gun control legislation? >> well, he is not going to do it by legislative in my opinion. what i'm concerned about and have been concerned about, since even well before the elections is having seen the president rule by executive order where he has no authority in other areas, i can see that he would just go ahead -- and the vice president has hinted at an executive order that moves toward their gun cone troll agenda. that, i think changes the game and throws into question how legitimate the federal government is. and i would advise mr. obama to consider what happened to george the third when he was doing similar things against the american colonists >> he hasn't banned the importation of ball and powder yet. that was one of the contributing elements to our war for independence. and george the third as you probably know, was so stressed by the loss of his famous favorite colony that he ended his days in a nut house, and i wouldn't wish that on anybody. >> when i talk to you mr. pratt, i always look for some sense of humanity that you could

assault weapons and magazines. i want to close the gun shows. and i'd like to see president obama increase federal funding. it would go a long way to at least try to stop the deadly toll on gun violence. things got heated the last time he was here take a listen. >> it seem to me you are morally obtuse. and i don't know why you want to be the criminal's friend. >> what a ridiculous argument. >> larry prapratt, welcome back you. >> thank you for having me. >> why did you agree to come back? >> well, i thought maybe we could help you sell some more newspapers. >> more newspapers? yoo >> increase your viewership. >> we are a television channel you are aware of that? >> i'm sorry yes, of course. >> if you are in the meeting tomorrow with vice president biden tomorrow what would you be saying? >> that the discussion has not been going anywhere that we can tell in a productive way. we are not talking about people defending themselves precisely in these gun-free zones. hopefully, at some point, we are going to come to the realization that repeating the same policy year after year getting

obama to increase federal funding for mental health treatment for all americans who need it. i think that's the right direction for america. and my guest last night, right-wing radio show host alex jones, couldn't have disagreed more. listen to this. >> when they get our guns, they can have their world tyranny while the government buys 1.6 billion bullets, armored vehicles, tanks, helicopters, predator drones, armed, now in u.s. skies, being used to arrest people in north dakota. the second amendment isn't there for duck hunting. it's there to protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs. >> that interview, which was really more of a rant by alex jones, got a lot more heated. in fact, it was hard to get a straight answer out of him at all. but tonight i want to dig deeper into some of the important issues that were drowned out in all his yelling. joining me now is "new york times" columnist nick christoph and mark potok of the southern poverty law center. nick, let me start with you. what was your overall reaction to that extraordinary exchange with alex jones last night? >

wearing bullet proof vests and had armed guards. >> really? >> during the aftermath of obama care when there were the president was being held in effigy and these comments were blocking members of congress from being able to go and vote and you may recall that and people like john beau wisconsin were being called racial epithets. this wasn't isolated. this was happening in our nation's capital and around the country. whether it is guns or the issue of mental health or anything that is a hot button issue, where we can't talk to one another, and that i think is the more disruptive, disturbing thing. i felt threatened when he was threatening you. the fact that we're not thinking about one another in those ways, he was assaulting your human dignity. >> i mean, personally i never felt threatened by him. what i felt was it was one of those things we will let him talk because getting inside the mind of a man who has millions of people that listen to him every week and believe what he says, there is sort of leading commentator in american society actually saying the american government under p
